As we got ready for this month’s focus on how churches can play an important role in challenging the stigma surrounding intimate partner violence, we saw a lot of great examples of churches doing really amazing work to address intimate partner violence (IPV), both within their congregations and in their wider communities. So, today, I wanted to share some of those examples with you, because I think those examples offer a starting point for people who may be considering actions they can take within their own faith communities.
Check out some of these great ways that churches are taking on the issue of IPV. You can click on the links to learn more about each initiative.
We hope learning about these examples inspires more creative, effective ideas about how churches can rally together to support survivors and prevent further abuse. We know that there are many other examples out there, too, and we hope you’ll share those with us and other members of the See the Triumph community.
